Contemporary Plagues: Learning From Our Past

JewishPress Logo

The world seems to be collapsing only to those who cling to structures that are fallible, as King David says, “In darkness they walk; all foundations of the earth collapse” (Psalm 82). If we cling to the surrounding culture, we will be as vulnerable as it is.

But what happens if we bear in mind what our Prophets and Sages have told us, that at the time of our Final Redemption “He will let us hear, in His compassion, for a second time, in the presence of all the living ‘I am Hashem your God’ “?

If we keep that thought in mind, we will be like our ancestors in Egypt who clung to the guidance of Moshe and Aharon and who left crumbling Mitzraim to march in glory to receive the Eternal Torah directly from the Almighty.

As in Egypt, when the surrounding culture was falling apart, we have one recourse and one recourse alone: to cling with all our strength to our Eternal Structure, God and His Torah, and by doing that, we will live to see the glorious day when “Hashem echad u’shmo echad” – when the entire world acknowledges the Truth of God’s Existence. Then, Torah will emerge from Zion and the Word of God from the Rebuilt Jerusalem.

May we see it soon with our own eyes.
